    Now some more good news

    Sale of Rafale Dassault Aviation "is preparing for a big future" in India
    8:31, 23 September 2016, amended to 8:43, September 23, 2016

    After several years of export difficulties, the French Rafale found buyers from India. A first partnership could call others.

    INTERVIEW
    "We are preparing for a great future in India," said Eric Trappier, CEO of Dassault Aviation micro Europe 1 on Friday. Well as aircraft tip, the French Rafale have long been shunned by buyers. But that time is now over as the Minister of Defence, Jean-Yves Le Drian and his Indian counterpart to sign the sale of 36 fighter jets Friday.

    "Great pride" for the French Air Force. The manufacturer of the famous Rafale confirmed, those are 36 aircraft to be purchased by India. Jean-Yves Le Drian, the defense minister, is about to sign the historic agreement with his Indian counterpart in New Delhi on Friday. There is talk of a contract to 8 billion euros. The CEO of Dassault recognizes that it is a great pride. "It's a sign of success based on the performance of the aircraft but also the confidence that Indians have given us and a patient since worked hard" for this command. Negotiations began in 2007.

    A contract that could be the first of many. If this contract is also interesting for France than for India which will see Dassault reinvest nearly half of its profits in the Indian industry, it could be followed by d 'other. "There is a big demand from the Indian Army and especially the air force. (he meant IAF +IN)So it is also preparing for a great future. That is why we want to have very strong partnerships with Indians today. " This contract will "initiate a strong cooperation with India in the development of 'make in India' . We wish to settle in India to work the Indians," said Eric Trappier.

    I have been telling you guys that Rafale under MII is already a done deal and the final quantum of the deal will be over 225 aircraft including Naval Rafale-M. It may even hit the same figure as Su-30MKI of about 300.

    I can assure you that DM MP will make a statement in Parliament or do a press conference and give out the details of this deal. It is already planned. They may not spell out the complete list of Tech transfer as part of offsets.

    The maintenance reserve is to maintain a 75% availability of the aircraft till the production of Rafale under MII starts. After that spares will be sourced in INR from Indian vendors.
